London Montessori was the first of its kind to open its doors in London, Ontario, in 1964. Since that year, several other Montessori schools have popped up around the city. Principal Rita McAuley has been running the school for over 30 years, though the first 10 years were in a different location.
At LMS we enjoy working closely with pre-school aged children. In our specially prepared environment, the children participate in activities that allow them to grow and develop at their pace. Our job as teachers is to help the children to help themselves so that they may develop the fullness of their own individual human potential through independence, inner discipline and discovery.
At LMS our aim is to allow each child to experience the excitement and joy of learning. We strive to help them to perfect their natural tools for learning so that their ability will be at a maximum in future situations.
In addition to a favourable ratio and Montessori education, each day the children are treated to an exciting, interesting and nutritious hot lunch from a menu prepared by a certified dietician.
